Park restrooms/water fountains are CLOSED for the season.

Welcome to the City of New Richmond’s Public Works page. The Public Works Department is responsible for maintaining the City’s streets, parks, water distribution, and wastewater collection/treatment systems. Our staff is made up of 16 full time positions, and as many as 5 temporary/seasonal positions.

These staff members plow snow, mow grass, sweep streets, build roads, provide drinking water, treat wastewater, and do everything in between.

If there’s a project in the City Beautiful, we are the ones doing it. I like to sum it up by saying that our primary function is “getting stuff done.”
